There is a new treatment for cellulite coming soon to Los Angeles that is sure to make the over 85% of women who suffer from this condition those who suffer from dimples in their buttocks and thighs jump for joy. It is called Cellfina, and it is the first FDA approved device to provide long-lasting improvement of cellulite.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the condition that causes dimples mostly on the buttocks and thighs. It occurs, in part, because there are fibrous connections between the skin and underlying tissues that pull the skin down. Think of a couch with buttons in the cushions.
How Cellfina works
Cellfine is a mechanical device that works by cutting those attachments that pull the skin. It works by being placed over a cellulite dimple. It grabs hold of the skin by suction. After numbing the area, a very small blade is introduced under the skin which severs the cellulite fibers. Pain is minimal, and most people in clinical trials only required Tylenol.
Treatment takes about an hour. Over 94% of patients in clinical trials were satisfied with their treatment 12 months later. Results last over a year.
